A new Washington Post-ABC News survey finds that 50% of Americans think President Obama is “making a good faith effort to deal with the country’s economic problems,” but Republicans are “playing politics by blocking his proposals and programs.”
Meanwhile, 44% think Obama is at fault and “has not provided leadership on the economy.”
Independents blame Republicans by a 54% to 40% margin, while moderate voters favor blame Republicans by 57% to 37%.
Greg Sargent: “For all their very real disapproval of Obama, they think one party is
acting in good faith to fix the economy, and the other isn’t. So when is
the national political press going to start seriously covering this
aspect of the debate?”
